The cathedral is a landmark in Reykjavik. Visitors expecting that this cathedral will compare to any of the classic Catholic cathedrals in Europe will be disappointed. Icelanders are overwhelmingly Lutheran and the inside of this edifice reflects that -- it is the most plain cathedral I have ever visited. There is no stained glass or color at all. Just white on white. The building looks spectacular from a distance, but up close it also is very plain -- looks like stucco. The only spectacular thing about the cathedral aside from perhaps is height is the impressive pipe organ on the inside. I would love to hear it, but it's nice just to look at. A visit of five minutes here was fine for me & glad that I went.
